Children between ages 1 and 3 years of age need 13 grams of protein every day, and children ages 4 to 8 years need 19 grams per day. Children between the ages of 9 and 13 require 34 grams. Teenage boys need more protein than girls, which is 52 gramscompared to 46 grams.

Even when the body is finished growing, you still need protein to repair and rebuild tissue. Adult women need about 46 grams of protein daily and adult men need about 56 grams. Examples of foods and the amount of protein it contains include: chicken, beef and fish (7 grams per ounce), milk (8 grams per cup), beans (16 grams per cup) and eggs (6 grams per large egg).

Combination Therapy Promising to Fight Cancer

A new study suggests the drug can be attached to cancer cells. Then the drug is activated by exposure to certain wavelengths of light. The results of these studies have been published in Nature Medicine. The treatment method can only be targeted at cancer cells only and does not damage surrounding tissue. A foundation that cancer is a promising treatment method can be effectively used as a cancer treatment.

Currently, treatment for cancer can be divided into 3 categories, such as blasting with radiation, tumor removal or use of drugs to kill cancer cells. All have side effects and the scientists are trying to find a more effective therapy and precise. In this study, researchers from the National Cancer Institute, Maryland using an antibody targeted to the protein on the surface of cancer cells. Antibody is accompanied by chemical IR700, and activated with infrared light.

To test the combination of antibodies and chemicals, the researchers embed the tumor and squamous cell carcinoma on the backs of mice. The mice were given the drug and given exposure to infrared light. The results showed that tumor volume decreased or shrunk significantly compared with control group mice. Advantage of this method of treatment is to be selective, and does not harm the surrounding healthy tissue.

The researchers say that a combination treatment consisting of therapeutic and diagnostic agents may hold promise for future cancer treatment. Although researchers have also been observed when toxicity studies, but these results still require a formal toxicity studies. " Dr. Laura McCallum, from Cancer Research UK Science also says that the results of these studies are very promising for use as a cancer treatment.

"The use of antibodies or photodynamic therapy to specifically target the cancer cells have been successfully to treat some types of cancer. So combining these two therapies can be effectively used as a treatment of cancer cells. However, because this study only been tested in mice, it is necessary to conducted a clinical study to determine the effects of such treatment in humans, "said Dr. McCallum.

Chlorine Boost Your Memory

Chlorine is found in many foods such as fish, eggs, liver, chicken, milk and certain legumes such as soybeans and red beans. People who consume a lot of chlorine in the food will get a score better on memory tests. This conclusion is obtained researchers from Boston University School of Medicine is evaluating the data from the study of cardiovascular health of nearly 1,400 adults aged 36-83 years. 

Participants were given food questionnaires from 1991 to 1995. Then in 1998 and 2001, participants underwent tests of memory and other cognitive abilities, the participants also underwent MRI brain scan procedure. The study found that men and women that a lot of chlorine intake scored better on memory tests than those in a bit to eat foods that contain chlorine. 

These findings suggest that people with a lower intake of chlorine is more likely to experience mental decline than that gets a lot more chlorine intake. In addition, people with high intake of chlorine is less likely to show a white area on the MRI scan of his brain. The area is considered a sign of vascular disease in the brain that could be a sign of increased risk of stroke or dementia.

"These findings add to evidence that the food you eat can affect how long the brain function," said senior researcher Rhoda Au, from Boston University School of Medicine. Nevertheless, it does not mean that chlorine is the answer to ward off Alzheimer's, a disease that steals memory 26 million people around the world.

Numerous studies have found links between diet and risk of Alzheimer's. Some experts suggest a Mediterranean-style diet may protect brain function. Mediterranean-style diet consisting of foods rich in fish, vegetables and fruits, whole grains and unsaturated fats like olive oil.

However they were not meant to prove that chlorine directly protect against changes in the brain memory is not healthy. One possibility is that there are several other nutrients with chlorine is a bigger role.

Nutrition is the fuel the brain chemical acetylcholine, a chemical that deliver electrical signals in the brain and plays an important role in the functioning of memory and other mental functions. Low levels of acetylcholine associated with Alzheimer's disease.

Experts recommend that men should get the intake of 550 milligrams of chlorine per day, while women senbaiknya got 425 milligrams per day intake.
